Who Should Try Facial and Body Waxing?

You’re beautiful regardless of what you decide to do with the hair on your body and face. Some people love the feeling of freshly waxed skin, whereas others prefer to go au naturel. The decision about how to manage your body and facial hair is entirely yours. However, if you’re interested in trying face and body waxing in Gilbert, AZ, work with the knowledgeable, friendly aestheticians at Gilbert Wax Bar, LLC!

Waxing is for everyone!

If you’re curious about face and body waxing in Gilbert, AZ, try it out and see what you think. Of course, you should never have any part of your body or face waxed if you’re feeling pressured to do so by others. If that’s not the case, make an appointment at our waxing salon for an amazing first-time experience.

Maybe you’re heading out for a beach vacation. Perhaps you’re an avid sports participant. Or maybe you just want to experiment with a new method for skincare. Whatever the case may be, facial and body waxing services are intended for anyone who wants to remove unwanted hairs.

What you should know before your first waxing appointment

We’re going to be honest with you—your first waxing appointment is the most painful. With each appointment after that, however, the discomfort decreases significantly. That’s why we recommend experimenting with a waxing service at least twice before deciding whether or not it’s for you.

If you suffer from any medical conditions, such as diabetes or phlebitis, or take blood thinners, you must consult your doctor before a waxing appointment. Waxing may exacerbate these issues, so you’d likely want to consider other hair removal options.

There should be at least ¼ inch of hair growth on the area of your body you want to wax. We recommend not shaving or plucking the area for three weeks before your first appointment.

Before you come to our wax bar, take a warm shower to open your pores and hair follicles. You should avoid applying any products to the area you’re having waxed on the day of your appointment. If you’re anxious about the pain, take two Advil 30 minutes before your appointment.

You should wear loose clothes made from natural fibers to your appointment and for a few days following it. Sweat and friction in sensitive areas that were recently waxed may cause irritation or infection. Avoid synthetic materials like spandex or polyester.

We realize how tempting it is to touch your freshly waxed skin because it feels incredible. But you should refrain from doing so to avoid clogging pores and exposing this area to any harmful bacteria that might cause infections.

If you’re experiencing red skin, red bumps, irritation or inflammation after your appointment, apply a cold compress to the waxed area. After at least 24 hours have passed since your appointment, gently exfoliate the waxed area and apply moisturizer.
